An Invitation to Attend

This conference is not about how to be sustainable. If it were, we would tell you not to waste your time. Instead, and more appropriately, this conference is about how to deal with the consequences of non-sustainability, that is, how to plan, design and construct infrastructure for a new and increasingly harsh operating environment.

Sereno"As the Director of Program Management at the Port of Long Beach, a premier seaport with billions of dollars of infrastructure critical to the economic and physical well-being of the United States, it is vitally important that the facilities we develop be efficient, resilient and sustainable. As critical as the Port is to the continued welfare of the country, we recognize our responsibility to develop, operate and maintain international commerce within our local community and the environment in a sensible, cohesive and integrated way. Committing to sustainable infrastructure development is a key strategy for maintaining our international competitiveness as well as our enivronmental and community stewardship. The International Conference on Sustainable Infrastructure will provide a world-stage for us to learn from and collaborate with colleagues and industry leaders who are dedicated to the principles of sustainable infrastructure. I'm looking forward to this conference to enhance my understanding of and my commitment to the principles of sustainable development."

- Doug Sereno, P.E., ENV SP, F.ASCE, Director of Program Management, Port of Long Beach
